On this blog I’ve often talked about how careful you need to be with email. No matter who you’re sending an email to, once you hit “send” it’s out of your hands. The recipient who you think is your friend now, might not be in a few months or years and they have the email. Plus, emails written in accounts like Google mail, or company accounts make those emails open to Big Brother type scrutiny.
Now, the Supreme Court has followed up with the same standard regarding text messages. In 9-0 ruling last week, they decided that an employer could monitor text messages if they felt it had an impact on the workplace (and that’s a wide berth).
Bottom line? Don’t put anything in a text message that you wouldn’t want to world to see….
Any other texting advice you’d like to share?
